"Education, education, education" is a slogan of current government, but in the mid-nineteenth century it also was at the heart of the debate about Britain's position in the world. The social problems accompanying industrialization and rapid urban growth provoked a widespread debate which forced education onto the political agenda, and the new ideas about teaching methods, curricula and the physical and moral care of children developed rapidly. This study, based on a unique cache of records of the Admiralty Schools at Greenwich, provides an extraordinary and striking insight into the problems and the achievements of mid-nineteenth schools. The story is enhanced by the connection with the Royal Navy--a major arm of empire--and provides unprecedented insight into the forces at the root of the sweeping changes of the period.   show more
